  • Excerpt: Discovery Series #2 doesn’t disappoint for those who like higher aged, higher proof bourbons. The age shows through with oak being a dominant trait. However, it’s nicely balanced by more subtle classic sweeter flavors which allow the sip to produce a more distinguished well-rounded flavor profile.

  • Excerpt: The finish is full and lengthy, with chocolate, roasted walnuts, rich oak, and a hint of spice. Outstanding.

  • Intro:

    Produced from a blend of KY bourbon, this mysterious combination comes to us from the Bardstown Bourbon Company in the form of their Discovery Series.

  • Nose:

    Rich, pungent and opulent - great dessert character right on the nose. Baking brownies, caramel sundae, pralines and vanilla bean.

  • Taste:

    Rich on the palate, loads of praline and caramel. Vanilla bean ice cream. The proof is spot on and brings great viscosity. Oak is just right. Old tobacco notes on the back palate.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. The proof carries so many great flavors for such a long time. Cocoa, cake batter, creme brulee and salted caramel make for an awesome finish.

  • Overall:

    I came into this bottling skeptical and left a fan. This blend takes all the best aspects of each age and marries them together for a dessert party that can't be missed.

  • Score:

    8
